Bird of Feather discusses the difficulties Flynn encountered due to being separated from his family and home. Sharing Space was recorded over 8 months in America, distancing the band members from their hometown of Bondi, Sydney Australia.

Flynn left his partner and 3-year old daughter home during the process and contemplates if working towards a better future is worth sacrificing the present.

Flynn: “That’s the heart of the song there – that conundrum that faces us all. Everyone is having to work harder and longer, and in most cases both parents, just to get by. It’s a consequence of the global predicament that everyone sees less of each other."

A quick description of a house party from Slaughterhouse’s Frat House

Titty in my left hand
Drunk as a freshman on his tenth keg stand
Got a sophomore, all jaw, give me drunk head
Roommate joined in, climbing down from the bunk bed

Joell also plays off the group’s name; no party’s like a Slaughterhouse party.

Joe Budden has a reputation for throwing the BIGGEST house parties

A mink is basically a high-class ferret, with fur used for luxury clothing and rugs.

A used mink is ‘bittersweet’, it’s a tainted prize—Em made it, but he sacrificed a lot to get there.

Rest assured that Eminem did in fact say “mink”: it says so in the digital booklet. It also fits the rhyme scheme: “mink,” “shrink,” “think.”

A song gets popular and labels push for their artists to try and recreate it, this turns into a ‘track-list’ battle where your album is rated on the features you pull

Exhibit A-
Drake ft. 2 Chainz and Big Sean- All me
Exhibit B-
Pusha T ft. 2 Chainz and Big Sean- Who I am

As Crook stated-
Don’t ask me who featured on my album, why how come?
Cuz nigga I’m featured on my album

Crooked discusses ‘getting f*cked’ by your label with wordplay

A person in the Navy with a cold is a sneezing seaman

Crooked has used a similar line before-

And I’m still rated X, stick my dick so far in a bitch’s throat
It’ll come out the other side and turn a blowjob into anal sex

If you’re a dickhead (taken literally), then your testicles are your brain, not a bad comparison considering the brain and testicles are both round, delicate control centres of behaviour

However, 2 Chainz was more likely referencing the possibility of brain metastasis in testicular cancer….maybe

"Somethin in my denim need a kiss, call it Gene Simmons" (Slaughterhouse – The One) | accepted

Note the wordplay on ‘denim’ and ‘Gene (jean) Simmmons’

"Bi-pola', not Nicki I'm worser, I'll hurt ya" (Yelawolf – Throw It Up) | rejected

Schizophrenia is often confused with dissociative identity disorder but bi-polar, schizophrenia and DID are all different conditions, good explanation but the link won’t inform anyone about the right one

"Pots with cocaine residue," (Kendrick Lamar – Money Trees) | rejected

Might also be a reference to the laced pot Kendrick had in ‘Maad city’
